data /nib'l/ (US "nybble", by analogy with "bite" -@# "byte")
Half a byte. Since a byte is nearly always eight bits, a
nibble is nearly always four bits (and can therefore be
represented by one hex digit).
Other size nibbles have existed, for example the BBCMicrocomputer disk file system used eleven bit sector numbers
which were described as one byte (eight bits) and a nibble
(three bits).
